Do I need a Doctor’s referral?
No, you do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist, we are considered primary health care providers. However, some extended health benefit plans DO still require a doctor's referral in order for your treatment to be covered. Please check with your individual benefits provider.
What types of health insurance do you accept?
What are your fees?
Our initial assessments are booked for 60 minutes and each follow-up treatment is 30 minutes (or longer if requested). Our 30 minute treatment sessions allow for more discussion, education and hands on treatment.

At this time, Hillside Physiotherapy does not offer direct billing to any insurance providers. You will be given an invoice containing all the information you will need to submit to your benefits plan.
We do not accept WSIB or MVA clients.
What can I expect at my initial assessment?
Following a thorough discussion of your injury or condition, medical history and lifestyle, your therapist will complete a global assessment of your body type and posture. You will be asked to perform functional movements that are meaningful to you as your therapist assesses your body's movement patterns. You will then have a more detailed assessment of the areas most relevant to your concern.
Your therapist will discuss the findings from the assessment with you, including education about relevant anatomy, body mechanics and the "driver(s)" of your condition as well as pain management strategies. They will make recommendations about physiotherapy treatment including manual therapy, modalities and exercises. You will work together to create a program of care with personalised goals.
What should I wear?
Please wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to move in. The clothing should allow for easy access to the area of the body being treated. Shorts are preferred for treatment of the hips and pelvis. Please avoid racer back style sports bras if the upper back is being assessed or treated.
